Recently I’ve came across some websites and projects which have as only purpose to present us in visual terms, information they gather from other websites or news sources. They simply aggregate them and present those information bits in some highly graphical way… today I just noticed Newsmap:
Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. (…) provides a tool to divide information into quickly recognizable bands which, when presented together, reveal underlying patterns in news reporting across cultures and within news segments in constant change around the globe
Strangely enough, at the beginning seems a messy representation, but the colors and sizes became addictive quite easily.
